Costume Information

Cost : 0.00
Time Taken : 2 hours

Ok Scyther is my fav pokemon in the world and I'm yet to do a gijinka so it makes sense really that I would make this. Started the robes tonight with sum left over fabric from my Tatyana cosplay. Did make an orginal design with loads of mecha armour and a helmet but then I found this design and fell in love with the scarfs as wings - plus I think I have enough fabric and card to make everthing without buying anything new so thats the other reason why I went for this - need to use up all that excess fabric I buy :S

***UPDATE 12/5/11***
This cosplay is now retired as the scythe arms didnt make it home in one piece and had to throw them away. Though it was a lot of fun so we never know may remake it at some point in the future :D

I think you were a bit tired of everyone going "Scyther!" in the anime voice XD
Looks great!
